    is there a deadline for submissions (sorry if I missed this somewhere obvious!) - keen to get involved but waiting for my M+ to be returned from the repair shop, any day now hopefully, and finally try out auto-sampler!

    I had a question regarding using “Third Party Copyrighted name” for samples. I’m assuming this means I can’t autosample a product like Arturia Piano or something similar? Does this only pertain to the submissions for the contest or is it also for posting anything in the sampling room? Is sampling external gear generally acceptable because it hasn’t been virtualized into a software yet?

    Am I allowed to distribute multi sampled instruments freely anywhere else? Are we allowed to sample any NI products (e.g. kontakt libraries)? Sorry for all the questions, just trying to better understand what your expectations are.

    Can I post auto-sampled Native Instruments plugins? I just made a killer sampled instrument from the Brass Ensemble instrument from the Symphony Series. I'm not sure what the third-party rights are with that but it sounds killer.
